Dear Bowen Families,
Happy Friday!  Every week we talk about how many interesting things are going on around Bowen and how busy it feels...and then it gets even busier!  One item we can finally check off our list is MCAS testing, as we have finally reached the end of Bowen’s official testing schedule for the year!  While we still have a couple of make-up exams left to give, our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders are now pretty much all set with that official task!  Now we can all focus on the special events that always pop up during May and June...which is what makes life in an elementary school so much fun!  We hope you have some fun times planned for your weekend and that you have the chance to enjoy time with family and friends.  Thank you for everything you do to support your children and make Bowen the wonderful community that it is!  Have a great weekend, and we will see you on Monday!    
Yours truly,
Diana & Tiffany
